We paly for money all the time, and all of us know each others putting game and therefore we are always good to each other. Now if its windy or someone is having an off day.....fair game baby! Usually 5 footers are good thoughor basically leaners.

At the last tournament I played someone was saying that there is a rule now that if the group agrees that the disc is a gimme, they can give it to the person without them putting. I'm not sure if this is true or not. Has anyone else heard anything about this?

Doubt it, that could get ugly if you were playing with a bunch of your friends or something like that. Might say ya for you and not for someone else.

If i or anyone after playing for 7-8 years can still miss a 10 footer on level ground we should just give up.

Wow! I'm never giving up the game and missed putts happen all the time. Guess Omega never loses discs over water since he can just walk on it and go retrieve it. Wow. As I've said before NOTHING is a gimme unless you can lean over and touch the chains with the disc. No one is perfect. Show me, bang those chains!

I've seen ball golfers allow gimmees until it was to their advantage to have an opponent putt out, hoping the pressure would unnerve them. I putt out everything. I'm not good enough to say I would make everything inside 10'.

Oh yeah. And I'll ask them if they want me to pick them up sometimes, especially on those holes where the next tee is back the other way.

I voted for if you can touch chains, it's a gimmie, and I typically play by that rule. I'll pick up the disc and smack the chains and go to the next hole. If a round is real casual, we (my normal group) will usually pick up inside of 10ft.

I doubt this is true, but if I were playing a tourney and everyone decided my putt was a gimme, I'd take it. I don't see how this could work to everyone else's advantage though. If I'm playing for cash, I wanna see you make that putt, even if it's parked under the basket.
